I am using windows 7, suffering from a pesky re-direct virus, computer feels sluggish as well.

I notice Remind32.exe which I've never noticed before, researching it looks like it belongs to programs I do not believe I have or use, so this may be the virus hiding as remind32.exe


So far I have run microsoft security essentials, combofix, then I tried following someone elses google redirect post and I booted into safe mode, used Rkill TDSSKILLER and Superantispyware - Super did find 514 things and cleared em but not solving my problem. Even after running Rkill it was redirecting while I was trying to follow the steps.

 

Then booted back into normal mode and ran Malwarebytes yet again. Its still doing it.

 If it were me, I'd decide I'd reached the point of diminishing returns on trying to fix the problem.  I'd back up anything I didn't want to lose, then restore to factory settings.  That's a PITA I know, but you can usually do it in half a day, and I'd guess you've already spent more time than that trying to fix the problem.  After getting these nasties on a computer, sometimes the damage is such that fixing it is extremely difficult.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

What browser are you using?

remind32.exe is for Corel product Registration.

If you don't want to register Corel products and be reminded about it every 2 weeks disable it

I am using firefox.
Ive only wasted about an hour trying to fix it so far. The guys on this forum have always known how to fix these things in the past I am hoping this is another common issue one.

Except for backdoor infections,major file corruption or if here is nothing on the machine a reformat is usually my last resort.

In FireFox it may be the Add ons/Plugins. First look for unknown add ons and disable. Or
Try disabling them one at a time and see which one was at fault.

How to disable extensions and plugins

Keeping your third-party plugins up to date


If it is your homepage...
Click the Firefox button at the top left corner of the page and choose Options.
In the Home Page URL box, enter the homepage you want to use instead of SweetPacks and then click OK.

Then the next thing is to post a DDS log and see what we have.

Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

You're welcome!1

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 5 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
